From: Elliot (UK)
Hi. I am 26 years old living in the UK and have been diagnosed with vaso vagal syncope. I have just started taking midadrine after 3 years of attacks. Unfortunately my attacks were severe and were mistaken for epilepsy for a number of months. I have been batted about between cardiology, neurology etc for 3 years. Just read your article (Mary) and felt i needed to reply because i felt very alone in my conditions due to the disruption it causes your life. I am an engineer and was working offshore on the oil/gas platforms in the sea until this began but cannot do that anymore. Not being able to drive is awful also and i also fear the fact that i live alone.
